Public preview: Azure Container Registry connected registry for IoT Edge
Published date: 02 November, 2021
Azure Container Registry (ACR) connected registry feature for IoT Edge is now available in public preview.
The connected registry feature of ACR allows you to deploy a registry on their premises and synchronize images and other OCI artifacts between the cloud ACR and the edge. It brings the container images and OCI artifacts closer to the container workloads on premises and increases their acquisition performance.
ACR connected registry can be used in conjunction with Azure IoT Edge runtime and enables the deployment of hierarchical IoT Edge topologies. It also supports occasionally connected scenarios and scheduled connectivity to the cloud.
